Not having been there to witness the incident I can't tell you other than to
suggest that the report in the paper claims that the *police* allege he did
a donut burnout and fishtail up the road before being pulled over.
Whether he did that or not I can't tell you, but I'd imagine that if that
wasn't the case there were plenty of witnesses to back Hamilton's defence if
he should choose to argue the case.

Yeah grow up.. or send out a P plater first as a decoy.
I don't take sides.
It's more fun to insult everyone.
